Arthritis Pet Walk 2014

This year’s Pet Arthritis Walk was held in conjunction with the Walk to Cure Arthritis on May 10th. The Dog Walk is annually sponsored by University Bird and Small Animal Clinic to increase awareness of the public to Adult Stem Cell Therapy to improve the comfort of their 4-legged friends. This year, our team name was “March On Sherman” in honor of Sherman, a 13-year-old Pitbull mix- the first dog to receive stem cell therapy in our clinic! Our clinic had nine human participants (and seven dogs, including Sherman). We raised a total of $455 for the Arthritis Foundation, an organization that funds research related to treating joint diseases. Keep your eyes peeled for information on next year’s Dog Walk!
